    Perfect for a short-term, table-top Christmas tree, this conifer may not come as a perfect pyramid, but it looks charming, especially when adorned with decorations, lights or tinsel. Try to keep it in a cool, bright room and move it outside as soon as possible after Christmas, where you can enjoy it for the rest of the year. It is currently around 45cm tall (including the pot) and has beautiful, blue tinged green, needle-like leaves. As it matures it will also produce oval, green summer cones that age to brown. A slow-growing, broadly conical, evergreen conifer is an excellent specimen tree for a small, sunny garden. Best in moist, well-drained, neutral to acid soil or ericaceous compost if you wish to keep it in a pot.

  • Garden care: To maintain the plant's distinctive shape remove any misplaced or diseased branches in winter.

  • Q:

    Hi, I,m not sure I have the right tree here, but I bought a small, living Christmas tree from you last year. I put it outside in January, and covered it with fleece to allow it to adapt. It did well, and didn't shed a needle. But I have just noticed, after a current, hot and dry spell, it is shedding. I haven't repotted it and didn't water it much (this is Manchester).
    What can I do? Can I save my lovely little tree?
    Thanks for your help.

      A:

      Hello,

      If it is just the older foliage that is being shed, then this may be natural, particularly if the plant is starting to put on fresh new growth. It will need a large pot and lots of watering though throughout the summer, and it will also benefit from a feed of general purpose fertiliser such as Vitax Q4 or Growmore.
